Abstract/Description: I Lost My Cherry… is the southern-gothic coming of age story about Purdy Brackshaw, who while trying to lose her virginity with her boyfriend Rat, must deal with her parents' crumbling marriage, and her best friend's plunge from upper class to trailer trash. This story began as a short story taking place in a rural town in Alabama called Ames. Over the past two years, these characters have come to life, and this fictional town has become a reality in my imagination. I hope to continue to develop this novella into a full length novel, and I plan to continue writing the lives of the people that live in Ames, Alabama.
